The preliminary Reuters / University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for October was at 86.4, up from 84.6 in September.

This was above the consensus forecast of 84.2. Sentiment has been improving following the recession - with plenty of ups and downs - and a big spike down when Congress threatened to "not pay the bills" in 2011.
